TEHRAN, 29 MAY - The statements made today by the US national security adviser, John Bolton, who from the United Arab Emirates accused Iran of being behind attacks recently suffered by four commercial ships, including two Saudi oil tankers, in the Gulf of Oman, south of the Strait of Hormuz. The spokesman of the Foreign Ministry of Tehran, Abbas Mousavi, said this. "These ridiculous accusations are not something strange, given that they come from two members of the 'Group B' enemy of Iran," added Mousavi. According to Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, the 'Group B' includes Bolton himself, Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu, Saudi crown prince Mohammad bin Salman and that of the Emirates Mohammad bin Zayed.
